Asphalt roofing is also a low-maintenance option that is very durable.
Asphalt is a viscous form of petroleum that has many applications. You might be familiar with the substance in road construction, as many of the roads we drive on are made with asphalt. Another use for the liquid and semi-solid material is in the roofing industry, as many of the shingles used in both residential and commercial roofing are made with asphalt.
The material is also known as bitumen, and it’s a by-product of oil refineries. As a result, it’s fairly easy to get and quite affordable, so many roofing material manufacturers use it in the products they produce. Some commercial and industrial facilities have a different type of asphalt roofing known as modified bitumen or built-up roofing. This material comes in sheets that are larger than shingles, so it can cover larger surface areas.
One of the advantages of asphalt roofing is its ability to resist moisture. When the rain starts to fall or snow accumulates on the roof of a structure, it can prevent water from seeping through to the interior space. Asphalt roofing is also a low-maintenance option that is very durable. When cared for properly, it can last for years and provide extensive protection.
